friday flan!

happy friday everyone! :)
here are a few highlights from my week:
i'm loving honeycrisp apples. the perfect amount of sweet and sour, and the perfect amount of crunch.
this weekend, bub-hub and i are flying to arkansas for a family wedding. i can't wait to see everyone and fill up my hug-tank!
i received this message on one of my dove chocolates this week. yummy chocolate and encouraging words are a perfect combination. 
"gracefully and professionally"...this has been my mantra over the last few weeks.  i was reminded by a co-worker that even when things start getting crazy around the office, i have to respond calmly and act "gracefully and professionally". easier said than done, but i'm trying!
this week, i tried flan for the first time.  more specifically, flan with coconut cream sauce and pineapple topping. i've falled in love and i think my life is forever changed. :)

how was your week?
what are you looking forward to this weekend?


  1. for your first time trying Flan, that looks like a wonderful piece to try! and love that Dove Chocolate piece of advice :)

    Have a lovely weekend.

  2. I was reminded to be graceful and professional at work a few weeks ago, just in different terms. Clearly, you have some cooler co-workers than I do. Some days I just want to pull my hair out, so slap a particular co-worker, and apparently it can show. I'm trying to do better, anddd applying for new opportunities :)

    And flan, I agree. I had it this spring for the first time (it always has scared me) and delicious. Mine was also coconut, but with raspberry and dark chocolate. Delicious!

    Happy Friday!

  3. Yay for a fun wedding trip!! have fun, travel safe!

  4. That is great advice, i need to remember that more often...graceful and professional...MAN!
    Flan...hmmm....i haven't tried it but the name is disheartening haha.

  5. YUM flan! Being married to a Cuban has opened my eyes to many tasty treats, and flan is definitely in my top 5! ;) Have a great trip this weekend!

  6. Love that "gracefully and professionally" line! That sums up how to be a lady in every circumstance. Those words will now be on my mind too!

  7. Anything with pineapple is a win. I've been known to order a drink just because it has pineapple in it.

  8. That flan sounds amazing!

    I love graceful and professional! It is perfect!

  9. I love how a little piece of chocolate can provide such a simple, yet useful piece of advice.

  10. I love the little messages in the Dove wrappers.

  11. That flan sounds amazing! Also love the apples...such a great fall treat!

  12. You have me wanting to try flan now, too! I loooove Dove thing ever. Hope y'all have fun at the wedding!!

  13. I have never tried flan - sounds good tho!
